This structure should not have been exposed to userspace in the first
place: it's unusable by userspace as it is. It was incorrect to have it
outside of #ifdef __KERNEL__ before commit 607ca46e97a1b ... 

... and it's not exchanged between kernel and userspace, see
coda_psdev_write():

        struct upc_req *req = NULL;

        ...

        if (copy_from_user(req->uc_data, buf, nbytes)) {
                req->uc_flags |= CODA_REQ_ABORT;
                wake_up(&req->uc_sleep);
                retval = -EFAULT;
                goto out;
        }

Only data, a caddr_t, is read from userspace.

So the structure can be moved back to <linux/coda_psdev.h>.

All CODA_REQ_* defines internals to kernel side and not exchanged with userspace.

Please move them back to <linux/coda_psdev.h>

Regards.
